Average Waypoint Command

The Average Waypoint Command creates a new waypoint by averaging the locations of a group of waypoints, or a group of trackpoints.

    • On the Waypoint menu, click Average Waypoint.
    • Right-click the selected waypoint, and click Average Waypoint.
  3. The Edit Waypoint dialog will appear, allowing you to label the new waypoint.

The group of waypoints will remain selected after the new waypoint is created, allowing you to delete the waypoint group after the averaged waypoint has been created.
